Newman Street, 20 February 1815. 3 pp. 9 x 7 inches, in fine condition, traces of guard where formerly mounted. John Bacon (1777-1859), sculptor. His father died in 1799, and John Bacon, junior, succeeded to his business. He finished such works as he found in progress, including the well-known statue of Lord Cornwallis, and managed to secure ample patronage for himself. There are six of his monuments in St. Paul's Cathedral, and some in Westminster Abbey. “I should also take the liberty to ask for the inscription to Sir John Moore; but as that Monument will be placed upon the floor of the church, we are not impeded in the erection of that by the want of the inscription, as we are in the other instances referred to.”

11 Bloomsbury Square, London 16 May 1848. 4 pp. 9 x 7 inches, folds, in good condition. Spencer Timothy Hall (1812-1885), known as the ‘Sherwood Forester’, mesmerist and miscellaneous writer. His letter includes mention of the poets Richard Howitt and Bernard Barton. “Alas for poor Walter Crisp Ellis, about whom you inquire! One Saturday last winter, he was negociating for me with my poor alienated wife, and fell dead whilst washing himself on the following Tuesday morning! I am mesmerising again, truly enough - and am as truly much engaged, just as you suppose; and, just as you also suppose, that is the only cause of my not writing more to my friends in whose kind remembrance and forgiveness I have perhaps more faith than I ought to have.”

Mr. Forsyth, although unable to return himself via Wakhan & Badakshan has managed to effect our object of obtaining better information as to Sirikot and its neighbourhood by pushing on a party there.
